Hi,

Several weeks ago, my machine was filled with all manner of malware. I worked with Daemon to remove much of it, and as a result now have all removal utilities installed on my system (i.e., HJT, CWShredder, Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster, Registrar Lite, Browser Hijack Blaster). [Details on those previous actions are in the earlier case thread entitled, "Persitent Change to Martfinder" <http://www.spywarein...T&f=18&t=1290>.

There was one problem that Daemon and I could not fix--the Appinist_DLLs value was (and still is) locked on c:\WINNT\system32\kbdlp.dll. Perhaps that is the root of the continuing stream of malware appearances.

Browser Hijack Blaster runs constantly in the background and will pop up from time to time after some event has caused my settings to change. I have also been very consistent about scanning with recently updated versions of CWShredder, Ad-Aware, and Spybot S&D. Often those scans come up clean. But occasionally, perhaps once a day or so, they do find and remove assorted junk. The items found are usually CoolWebSearch, PeopleOnPage, and various Browser Hijack Attempts. Problems with HomeOldSP and about:blank are very common. I still have all the Ad-Aware quarantine logs if that helps for diagnosis.

In addition, after Ad-Aware or any of the other scanners have found and fixed problems, I always run HJT and look for suspicious entries, which are usually R0s or R1s. Still, the problems keep trickling in.

This is situation is annoying enough that I'd like to get the root of it, if possible. Maybe it's kbplp.dll, or some other vulnerability that we haven't yet identiifed. Thanks for any advice. Below is a current HJT log. Note that R1 is marked as an obfuscated dll. I tried to remove it, but it still appears. That particular problem is as recent as this morning.

Bobby

Malware continues to accumulate. This morning's scan in Ad-Aware found 15 bad objects, CWShredder found a problem with Searchx (as it often does), and I had to remove several R0s and R1s using HJT. If possible, I'd like to solve the underlying problem sometime this week. Here is a new HJT log and DLLFix log. Any advice about what to do next would be much appreciated.

Thanks. I appreciate your effort on this.

I might have the Win2k CD, but it would take some deep searching.

same here...used the updated cws hredder,but it keeps coming back (cws.searchx)

I REALLY Suspect that there is a backup file fore this sophisticated version of spyware.In this case,one must find it so that we kill this pest once and for all

here is the link:

http://www.spywarein...wtopic=4176&hl=

you only have to replace the filename "OIMEEKB.DLL" in this line:

Copy and paste this into the 'From' box: C:\WINDOWS\System32\OIMEEKB.DLL
Copy and paste this into the 'To' box: C:\Junk\OIMEEKB.DLL

with the file listed in the

"Found Main Hijacker " line in the Dllfix's log.

i did it a few days ago and searchx didn't return, also after a couple of reboots.

GOOD LUCK!

My DLLFix log did not identify a "main hijacker". And when I tried to use the fix option on two prior occasions, the operation failed.

Any other ideas what to try next.

It appears that kbdlp.dll is the culprit, but I have no idea how to release the hold that windows OS seems to have on it. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks.

As is my routine each day, I recently scanned with CWShredder, which removed a Searchx item, and fixed a couple of R0 and R1 lines using HJT. Here is the current log.

To be honest - The only thing I can see that needs deleting is:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [tourpath] regedit /s c:\winnt\tour.reg
Delete the entry from HijackThis and then delete the file itself. Other than that, your log is looking clean.

Is the file kbdlp.dll still on your system?

I can see kbdlp.dll in C:\winnt\system32, but can't move or delete it. Also, using Registrar Lite, I can see that the AppInit_DLLs value is set to that same file. Clearing it doesn't work. It is my understanding from the earlier advice, that as long as that value remains set to kbdlp.dll, then my system remains open to new malware. Every few hours, Spyware Blaster detects an attempt to change my start page. And CWShredder continually finds Searchx. Otherwise, everything does look clean.

Try the following procedure and let me know if it is successful - I now understand your problem and that file needs to go - For sure ...
  • Download the dllfix.exe program from here or from here and save it in a place you like.
  • Double-Click or Open the self-extracting file. It will ask for installation and change location. Please Keep it in the BOOT drive (Typically Drive-C) and not in any place else. In the "Destination Folder" location, just type in c:\dllfix and click on "Install".
  • Navigate to the folder with the contents of the file (c:\dllfix if you used the suggestion previously mentioned). You will see there are two more folders inside and four .BAT files.
  • Double-Click on "Start.bat" and you should get a command prompt open with a menu listing 4 choices:
    • 1. Run Find-All
    • 2. Run Fix
    • 3. View Readme
    • E. Exit
    Type in 1 and press "Enter". This should start up a report screen (Just press "OK" when a pop up box prompts you). Wait until the report has completed as this may take a few minutes. Once the search is complete, a dialog box will pop up saying "Hit 'OK' to view log." Press "OK" and notepad will open with a file named "Output.txt". There should be a random named .dll file listed.
    Option #1
  • Run the start.bat again after the "dll" is found or if you have not found it.. Run option 2 and choose correct option in submenu. The sub-menu should contain:
    • 1. Enter Dll name Manually <= If you found the dll name that is locked or in the appinit key, you type it in under this option.
    • 2. Run Fix without Dll Name It will be searched for Later. <= This is for if you can't find the dll name.
    • E. Exit
    Option #2
  • Post the contents of the "Output.txt" file into this message for further review.
  • Reboot. There will be the scan for the " dll " on-boot screen, which will search and fix it. There will just be a md5 scan if the filename was entered manually. (option 2,1 in start.bat)
  • Reboot and Download Ad-aware. Check for updates. Then Run the update Ad-aware.
  • Reboot. Run HijackThis and save the fresh log.

Here is the DLLFix output.txt results. Based on this, do you suggest that I enter "kbdlp.dll" manually as the filename in the Run Fix procedure? Also, in case it helps with your diagnosis, I tried this same procedure twice with Daemon and it failed on both occasions. See page two in the earlier thread: http://www.spywarein...?showtopic=1290

Yes, C:\WINNT\System32\KBDLP.DLL is the file you are working on deleting. PLease follow the steps, even if you have done them before as it will help me in figuring things out. Also, some of the utilities get updated on a regular basis so the dllfix that you downloaded may not be the same as the one you previously tried.

Okay. I'll get a new version of DLLFix and follow the steps as soon as possible. Both download sites show that DLLFix is not currently available, so I'll just just keep checking until it comes back up.

The author has pulled the dllfix program as he does not have time to support it. Let's try this instead ...
  • Download reglite
  • install "Reglite" and run it, enter HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\ into the address bar.
  • Double click on AppInit_DLLs to open a "Data Editor" properties window, if the bottom textfield named "Value" contains a .dll file; then this is the hidden file you need to get rid off.
  • You should not be able to delete this file if you try to clear the value field, IMPORTANT: take note of the path and name of the .dll file. Write it down so you do not forget it.
  • Rename the Folder "Windows" (This is a purple "highlighted" folder in the left hand window) to NOTWINDOWS. Simply click on the folder, click on "Edit" in the menu bar and select "Rename".
  • Click AppInit_DLLs again and clear the value containing the .dll and ok it. This should have removed the .dll
  • Rename the windows folder back to its original name "Windows".
  • Run SpyBot, Ad-Aware and CWShredder
  • Check the following three links for instructions on downloading and running the applications listed:
  • Next step will be to remove this dll file so make sure you have it noted down.
  • Procedure 1
    • Download KillBox
    • Unzip and start the application
    • Paste in the dir <path and name of dll as found in the appinit value box> e.g. C:\Windows\System32\nameofdll.dll
    • Menu Select Action => Delete on Reboot
    • Select File => Add file <It should add the path automatically>
    • <Same Window> Select Action => Process and Reboot
  • Procedure 2 (If Procedure 1 did not work)
    • Click "Start" => "Run" and type in "cmd" (Without the quotations) and click on "Okay".
    • This will open a command window I will assume you have a basic knowledge of DOS if you have any problems at this point just write back I will outline the commands.
    • Type in dir <path and name of dll as found in the appinit value box> and press "Enter". You should see the name of the file listed.
    • Go to the system32 folder (This is where the .dll file will typically reside) and type attrib -R "nameofdll".dll
    • Carry out Procedure 1 again
  • Restart your computer in safemode (How do I boot into "Safe" mode?)
  • Open cmd window again as before
  • Type dir <path and name of dll as found in the appinit value box> and locate the dll name the dll should now have been removed and will not be listed.
  • While in safe mode, run the 3 ad-removal programs again, just to make sure all traces are gone.
  • Boot up your PC as normal and post a new HijackThis log into this message for further review.

I tried this same procedure with Daemon, and the problem that halted us is still happening. Everything works well through step 7. I can clear the value in AppInit_DLLs with the NotWindows trick. But if I close RegLite and then reopen it, to make sure the value remains clear, I see that the same value is reset (to c:\winnt\system32\kbdlp.dll). The minute RegLite closes it gets reset, and as far as we could tell that prevents the rest of the steps from working. Do you think it makes sense to run the ad-removal programs with RegLite still open and still set to NotWindows?

At this point I do not see any harm being done. Certainly give ad-aware a run before naming it back. Let's see if it works.

That did the trick! I finished all steps and now the AppInit_DLLs value is clear. Below is a new HJT log. It looks clean to me. If nothing pops up in the next day or so, I think we can declare victory. Thanks for your marvelous help. Much appreciated. You're good!

Your log, finally, is looking good :) Glad to of been able to help.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.
